See my adorable icon! The art is by humon (at DeviantArt), and I found it here, where can be found likely the darlingest (if not the most scientifically accurate) artwork you will ever see depicting the reproductive habits of hyenas, cuttlefish, and tamarins. And also seahorses.

In pursuit of academic excellence, I watched the ST:TOS episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" today. (Tribbles make excellent exponential function problems.)

And, uh. I was kind of charmed. It was so silly! It's been years and years since I've watched TOS, long before I developed any taste. All the ST I've seen in the last few years, mostly early TNG with clips of DS9 or Enterprise here and there, has been so dreadfully, laughably earnest. Whereas this knew precisely how silly it was and ran with it. I didn't even hate Kirk! Plus I have a weakness for 60s TV, with the over-bright sets and the stiff non-acting.

So I might be watching some more?

(In slightly related news, can anyone point me to a Firefly icon that incorporates Zoe's line, "We live in a spaceship, Dear"? I want a Joss-related explicitly SF-themed icon.

ETA: Check out the totally nifty icon [personal profile] next_to_normal made me! Isn't it spiffy?)

1. Reply to this post with "Icons, Plz!" and I
will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Icons below selected by [ profile] penny_lane_42, who startled me somewhat by titling her comment, "THE PORN ONE! THE PORN ONE!" If you are me, that is not an email title that you expect in your inbox.

Iconses! )

For example, my algorithm for finding SPN icons:

1. Go to journal of BtVS icon maker I like
2. Look up SPN tag
3. Snag yummy icons
4. Repeat

Seriously, of all my favorite icon makers - I've looked up maybe eight tonight - only one hadn't made at least a few SPN icons.

Lookie at the Seraphverse icon [ profile] ruuger made me! Isn't it lovely?

I feel as though I ought to write a little something in the 'verse just so I can show off the icon... *g*

The what icon do you associate me with? meme!

1. Do not look at the comments.
2. Take a look at my userpics. [actually, seems to me the most interesting results come from what comes to your mind without peeking, but whatever]
3. Post a comment with the icon of mine you associate with me. Leave commentary if desired.
4. Repost with your default icon and profit.

It occurred to me today that it had been, like, months since I'd gone trawling [ profile] indulging_breck's journal for icons. So I went, and I snagged yummy things. She has an entire series of ten icons for each episode BtVS episode through "Restless," and they are absolutely fab. *points to Willow foreshadowing icon of win*

Meme nabbed from [ profile] penny_lane_42.


default oldest newest
saddest happiest angriest
cutest sexiest funniest
fave ship fave fandom fave animated
best quote best textless best stolen idea
fave character fave episode fave season
use the most favorite

IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: Probably not. Having too many icons gets unwieldy after a while.
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: That I really, really like Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Also that I have fabulous taste in icons.
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Romantic, Buffy/Spike. But overall, definitely Spike/Dawn friendship.
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: All of them here, yes. I've been known to make icons of very specific things (math, a photo of myself) for non-fannish purposes.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: incredibly hard to do well

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

Choosing my own favorite was extremely difficult. It depends on the day, and even just today there are about five.

I finally settled on this one: one of [ profile] indulging_breck's clever juxtapositions of image and dialogue from the same episode. It's from "School Hard," of course, and Buffy's talking to Spike, but I love it because I can as easily apply the line to Buffy herself, first in S2 (oh, Angelus arc of utter angst!) and then for her entire Slayer career. As often as she rebuilds herself piece by piece, Slaying shatters her again. There are moments of triumph, but also a great deal of brokeness.

(Of course, the line is also prescient about the nature of Spike's experiences with the Slayer - lots and lots of pain. However, since Buffy's the one pictured, I don't tend to think of the icon as being about him.)

All that from a cap and one line that was about something else entirely in canon.

On a visual level, the completely washed-out color gives Buffy a very ghostly, ethereal appearance that I really like.

It's a meme of icons! How could I not?

01. How do you feel right now?

02. What's your favourite pastime? (Alas, I have no writing icon.)

03. Do you consider yourself a strange person?

04. What's your main fandom?

05. OTP?

06. How do you describe yourself?

07. What's your favourite icon to use that's not default?

08. Do you have an icon of your future husband/wife? (Look! It's my TV boyfriend!)

09. Do you have a WTF icon?

10. How do you feel towards love?

11. Saddest icon?

12. Happiest icon?

13. Crackiest icon? (when canon's the crackiest of all...)

Lookee lookee Calvin & Hobbes icons!!! I could make half my mood icons out of C&H alone.

This makes breaking my Jossverse-only icon rule very very tempting...

ETA: Also, I'm feeling much better today than I was yesterday. There is even ficcage coming to this journal in the near future. Hurrah! It's truly a wonder how much a mood booster writing is for me. It's like I get a whole attitude reset.

I have the perfect new default icon! 'Tis fabulous! 'Tis not the one of Buffy you see here. I deleted my old Dru icon before I realized that LJ is broken and not letting me upload the new icon, so now I've no Dru icons at all, ohnoes! Fabulous new icon forthcoming, I hope.

In other things, me and the housemate are through "The Dark Ages" in the rewatch. More later when I have time, but right now I have two Xander-centric observations:

* The writers were pushing the Xander/Cordy tension from the very beginning of S2. There's Willow's "Get the hell out of my library!" speech, but it starts even earlier than that. Almost every ep there's X/C sniping.

* I'd forgotten just how hard they pushed Xander's Buffy-crush. Yeep. Every time she so much as looks at a guy, from pretty much "Welcome to the Hellmouth" onward, it's all snark and spite from the Xander corner. Aimed at Angel, sure, but also at Owen, Billy Ford, random person she might hypothetically met over the summer... there is no subtlety there.
